Il questionario è completamente anonimo. Tuttavia, al termine della compilazione è possibile indicare, facoltativamente, il proprio indirizzo e-mail e nome per essere inseriti in un sorteggio casuale, che darà ai primi 2 vincitori la possibilità di partecipare al Congresso Annuale EFIM o al Congresso Italiano FADOI (per chi è in regola con la posizione societaria). Inoltre, riceverai una copia dei risultati del sondaggio o l’invito a partecipare ad un eventuale evento di presentazione. 


Dear Doctor,


we are carrying out, within the Health on the Web project, a survey aimed at evaluating the use, by the internist doctor, of digital tools (i.e. mobile applications, mobile health, sensors and other wearable devices, etc. ..) to improve patient empowerment.


In fact, while there is a broad worldwide consensus that the use of digital tools on a large scale would significantly improve the empowerment of the citizen/patient, however, to date, an appropriate assessment of the relationship between the physician empowerment and the citizen/patient empowerment has not yet been made .


The Health on the Web EFIM-FADOI partnership arises from the consideration that, with the advent of new media and digital tools in health management, the internist doctor positions himself as a primary reference to guide the change towards the best citizen/patient empowerment.

The Health on the Web project offers the unique opportunity to get insights for the development of initiatives, tools, and services aiming at enabling the clinician to lead the change and offering citizens/patients the opportunity to be adequately involved in clinical decisions about their health.


The Health on the Web project is conceived (2012) and coordinated by Dr. Letizia Affinito, Adjunct Professor at Boston College The James A. Woods, SJ, College of Advancing Studies and St. John’s University of Rome, author of the books “Empowering the Connected Physician in the E-Patient Era. How Physician’s Empowerment On Digital Health Tools Can Improve Patient Empowerment and Boost Health(care) Outcomes” (October 2018).


We kindly ask you to be an active part of this ambitious research project by responding to the following questionnaire which will be completed in no more than 15 minutes and give you the opportunity to immediately be entered in a random draw to win your “free participation” to the EFIM Annual Congress or to the FADOI Italian Congress.


Your contribution will be invaluable for the achievement of the expected results which, we hope, can have a positive impact on your clinical practice. The dissemination of the questionnaire amongst your colleagues will be very much appreciated.


The questionnaire is completely anonymous. However, at the end of the compilation you may indicate, optionally, your email address and name in order to be entered in a random draw, which will give to the first 2 winners the possibility to participate to the EFIM Annual Congress or to the FADOI Italian Congress if you are a member of the FADOI scientific association. In addition, you will receive a copy of the results of the survey or the invitation to participate in a possible presentation event.
